About Mario Junior

Hello, my name is Mário Júnior and I have been living in Porto for 40 years. Born in Angola, I was raised in Porto ever since and so I consider myself a true connoisseur of the city. I am a professional translator and interpreter. An enthusiast of outdoor walks, I particularly enjoy organising visits and bike tours and explore the city. Above all, I hope you make the most of your stay.

Mario Junior purchased this apartment in 2015

What makes this apartment unique

Despite being located in the heart of the city, this building stands in one of the safest areas of the city. With a lot of high street humdrum during the day, there is much to do: stroll along the parks, visit the traditional trade shops, pay a short visit to the El Corte Inglés department store or enjoy a good meal in one of the many cafes available.

Although very close to the nightlife (about 10 minutes away on foot), the building is located distant enough so as not to disturb your rest and comfort.

Vraiment très spacieux

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien reçu par la soeur de Mario. L'appartement est idéalement situé dans un immeuble de 2 étages. Le tramway est aux pieds et tous les commerces également. restaurants à proximité. Porto est à environ 15 mns à pieds.

Appartement très vaste , très bien équipé et confortable. Literie excellente. Conforme aux photos. nous étions 7 et nous avions nos aises.

C'est vraiment très facile de découvrir Porto depuis cet appartement. Je le recommande vivement.

a un paso de Oporto

  • 5 of 5

A 15 minutos andando al centro de Oporto,con parada de metro cruzando la calle.Sin problemas para aparcar el vehiculo en los alrededores,es una zona muy tranquila.El piso es un tercero sin ascensor un poco viejo,pero con dos cuartos de baños muy funcionales,4 habitaciones amplias y un comedor suficiente para el numero de personas que pueden hospedarse.Una cocina funcional y lo mas importante,aire acondicionado independiente en cada habitacion.Hemos estado muy agusto y si volvemos a Oporto no dudariamos en volver a cojerlo.100% recomendable

Muy cómodo y amplio

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos en el apartamento 6 personas, y nos encontramos muy cómodos, estaba muy completo, amplio, con una decoración muy moderna, siendo un piso antiguo. En los alrededores, teníamos un gran supermercado enfrente, el metro en la puerta y el centro histórico resultaba muy asequible, ideal porque queriamos estar fuera del bullicio que Oporto tenía esos días de agosto . Todo muy aconsejable. Muchas gracias, Màrio, por los dulces de bienvenida.

Schöner Urlaub mit bösen Überraschungen

  • 1 of 5

Eigentlich dachten wir ja, wir hätten einen Glücksgriff gelandet - denn anfangs dachten wir noch, die tolle Lage und der charmante Stil der Ferienwonung würde uns über so Dinge wie die furchtbar quietschenden Betten, in die Jahre gekommenen Möbel und die gequälten Hunde im Innenhof hinwegtrösten... leider sind wir nun mit dem Vermieter im Streit auseinander gegangen. Entgegen der Angaben im Inserat hat er eine sehr fragwürdige Extra-Endreinigungsgebühr verlangt und den Rest der Kaution einbehalten, weil einer der alten, zwar restaurierten aber brüchigen Stühle zu Bruch gegangen ist. Die Rechnung dafür hat er zwar versprochen, aber nie geschickt. Vermutlich, weil er beim Preis für den Ersatz des maroden Stücks nachweislich gelogen hat. Schönen Dank auch. Die Kaution sehen wir anscheinend nicht wieder.

Wer hier bucht, dem sei zu Wünschen, dass er keine Probleme mit dem Vermieter habe. Der Umgang nach dem Urlaub war alles andere als fair.

Located in the centre of the Porto district, this apartment promises to make your stay extraordinary. With wide spaces and a modern décor combined with traditional design, this space aims to provide your stay in Porto with a sophisticated, rustic and comfortable tone.


Only 5 minutes away by metro from downtown Porto, this space enjoys an ideal location at Avenida da República, within the urban centre and close to the best department store in the city of Porto, El Corte Inglés, and 15 minutes away from Gaia's Cable Car. If you wish to visit the city's landmark, the famous Torre dos Clérigos (Tower of the Clerics), please know that it will take you only 25 minutes on foot to get to the most emblematic monument of the city of Porto.


The space is also 30 seconds away on foot from the nearest metro station, 5 minutes away from the train station of General Torres and 20 minutes away from the International Airport Francisco Sá Carneiro. If it's more of your liking, you will also find a taxi rank and bus stops just outside the building.


Being Porto the city of Port wine par excellence, this apartment is just 15 minutes away, on foot, from the Cais de Gaia (Gaia's Pier) and of the main Caves de Vinho do Porto (Port Wine Cellars). There, you will also have access to a significant cluster of restaurants and bars that feed Porto's nightlife.


If, on the other hand, you are more keen on nature, the surrounding area is full of traditional shops and green spaces, suggestive of long walks. The pedestrian crossing along the D. Luiz bridge over the Douro is also a great alternative and an almost mandatory activity during your stay in the city of Porto. You may also enjoy the best view of the city from a belvedere which stands within a 10-minute walk from the apartment. The Monastery of the Serra of Pilar is a must to capture some of the best photos of the city or enjoy a romantic moment with your better-half. If the weather allows, you may still pay a brief visit to the beach located just a few minutes away by car or taxi or to the natural bird-watching observatory in the waterfront of the parish of Afurada.
